Abstract: The use o f moods in Italian is a very interesting problem but also difficult taking into account the complexity o f phenomena which must be analysed at the same time. It especially concents contexts in which different moods can appear alternatively. The aim o f the article is to examine contexts in which it is possible to use indicative and congiuntivo moods. The possibility o f choice between moods would mean the duality o f human nature which hesitates between affirmation and keeping a distance to that what makes the content o f an utterance. Employing the research mechanism described by cognitive linguistics that is, among others, notions such as prototype, semantic invariant or scheme and the methodology which is based on relationships existing between recognition, semantics and grammar it seems that the choice o f moods is the result stemming from information processing and based on m an’s cognitive abilities and his knowledge about the world - indicative would reflect locu to r’s responsibility for the truth value o f utterance content w hereas congiuntivo w ould be a language sign o f distance position towards that what he says.
